In America, about one quarter of our calories come from added sugar. In the early 1800s, sugar was considered a luxury and a treat, that was enjoyed on special occasions.

Our increasing intake of added sugar mirrors our rising rates of obesity and diabetes.

“We have solid evidence that keeping intake to less than 10% of total energy intake reduces risk of overweight, obesity and tooth decay,” says Dr Francesco Branca, Director of WHO’s Department of Nutrition for Health and Development.
